the next season. i saw don cheadle. don, you've got to bring tamara back. said, if i bring her back, i will have to kill her. tavis: i was hoping you were going to come back for another season. i hope they call you. hey, call her. doesn't stop me from asking the question i want to ask. over these 15 years since you did the first "best man come ," has your career gone in the way that you thought it would go? has yours gone the way you wanted it to be 14 years ago when you headed this direction. >> no one has ever asked me that question and i don't think i have thought about it in those terms. my commitment has been to do the things that move me. to understand there are political challenges, to understand that there are things that are so far out of my control. but then i can still aspire to get to where i want to be regardless of if they choose me or not. it took a long time to get to the place where that is a reality. we have to wait to be picked. let me jump in because i am with you now. how do you, or how have you gone about getting where you want to be without waiting to be chosen?
, hey, guys, i don't wear the black hat. we -- i am the white hat guy. his box office never went below 50 percent. we have people again who were so obsessed with being ideologically pure and calling out anybody else that they don't think is ideologically pure that we have forgotten how to win races. it is about winning at the end of the day. if you want to make the country more conservative, if you want to shape the world more in your image, you have got to win elections. >> rose: the republican party is a conservative party. >> uh-huh. >> rose: is it a moderate party? >> not right now. >> rose: well i mean can you name me five moderates who have elected office in the republican party? >> well,. >> rose: at the state or fall level? >> and here is part of the problem there are a lot of people out there who think chris christie is a moderate. >> rose: but that's now how in defines himself. >> se not a moderate historically those people who have come into the party and redefined who everybody was and think they can rearrange the deck chairs on the party that right now in real estate chul
they read novels, they can really bureau into a series and they don't have to wait for commercial break. you know, .. they don't have to be at their couch thursday at eight. >> rose: they can be there saturday morning and watch three hours in a row. >> exactly, they can binge and the quality of the material, it keeps escalating, and it is really very thrilling. >> rose: homeland, obviously is a great success because of good writing, good acting, and a very interesting narrative. but more than that, what is it you think makes homeland such an obsession for so many americans? >> well -- >> rose: they don't like it. they get a little bit angry. >> yeah, well, i mean, it is a sign that they care. >> rose: exactly right. no, it is. we will talk about that. >> yeah. i mean, when i read the pilot, you know, the ending was just so -- it was so, so well constructed and i was, you know, greedy for next one, and i got the sense that would be the case with every episode, and, you know, it is really provocative subject matter and, you know, it is incredibly relevant to what is happening right now a
. >> you don't need to be beholden. >> rose: to those 17. >> or to the 30 or 40 as they say. but as it turns out it was more like 100 -- well it was exactly 144 republicans who voted to not to end the shutdown, to keep the government shut down, and to default on the full faith and credit. so this 30 or 40 that are tail wagging the dog are more like a big tail wagging the dog or a big dog. >> rose: so there is this question. yes and they made a mistake, but some people will argue republicans made a big mistake in the shutdown and even tying it to obamacare or affordable care act of 2010, because if they had not shut down the government and had the focus on the shutdown of the government they would not be reaping the benefits of what seems to be a very strong and growing impression that the affordable care act was not ready for prime time. >> well -- >> rose: not just the web site, but the whole thing. and what the president promised and couldn't deliver. >> well, two points here. first of all, they did what they believed. they do not -- they are anti-government idea logs so s
of the stuff you've done. do something for us i'm not sure you've ever done. don't show us anything. let us find it. i knew i'd found a friend, a partner, and a teammate. so i didn't have to push. i didn't have to show how good an actor i was. i just had to be a human being. and he would be there to find it and see it and throughout the movie. when my old girlfriend comes out that long shot in that magical once upon a time face he takes the time to watch characters make decisions in the moment rather than cutting away to something else to speed up the scene. he lets you see it involveed. and makes it still entertaining in the way it's edited. and that was something that you get a few days in a movie but with him you get it everyday. even the faces of the people from nebraska and from wyoming, montana, south dakota where we were. he goes for eight months ahead of time with john jackson, his casting director, and they find faces. they don't look for buildings and stuff, they look for faces and then they would say, you know, on october 29 of this fall be in that bar and we'll put you in a movi
the heat and he went into all of this movie. very complex. it might bomb at the box office, but i don't care. i'm going to make this movie because i deleted it. and think of the box office was there from -- becau i believe in it. and thank god for the box office. it was there. i was arguing with the dan rather's of the world and all the naysayers. i never talk the attitude that movie. i felt responsible for the work. tavis: why did you feel that that movie had to make a statement? why did you can do so much of yourself to get out that storyline? myth that national hato be looked at. it is crucial to where we are today. what we try to say in the movable -- in the movie and in this untold story was that kennedy was significantly different than eisenhower before him and different from johnson after him. those three years with the beginning of a detente with the soviet union, a feeling for peace, a seeking out of a new ally with the soviet union, the end of the cold war, as kennedy called it at his university speech. pax of american war. presidents,merican next to roosevelt, he is the onl
out of five people don't think politicians are getting anything done. >> even when they try their basic task, passing a budget they can't do that and it costs the government $24 billion by shutting down the government so they can't do the basic job so people have looked for somebody who can do something and when you listen to what christi said he didn't mention one specific policy mention, he mentioned hurricane sandy which is a special case but he didn't mention about the item, he just said i get things done and that message, you know, they didn't want to clutter it, that's the message they are trying to get across so that thirsty country will hear something that they can take away from it. >> rose: nor did he suggest it was a victory for moderates. >> he clearly said i am a conservative. >> that's right. now -- >> rose: i have to get through the republican pry may. >> a week ago he wouldn't have said that, a week ago he was happy to be smeared with the moderate label, now he is a conservative, but what is he really? well, you know, he is pro-life, he is against same sex m
on with this that really prevents the crime from being detected and prevented from being -- i don't know what the right word is, fixed. but i think that's what is underneath. >> i want to go back to laws and how this criminal justice system needs to be reformed. i agree this is not a federal issue entirely but state and local government do what they can do i think it's a great move by virginia g.o.p. attorney general candidate mark obenshane is -- in his state, let's attack this problem, bring light to it i think different state officials like this need to do things like. that they need to unveil plans not just one law is going to fix this, not just one action but multitude of things. >> this new focus on imprisoning the buyers is that going to work? is that -- they -- used to call prostitution, now trafficking, the oldest -- most part trafficking, the oldest profession -- >> why in the world did this begin with putting the women in jail and not the men. if you really wanted to take care of this problem, it would go away. >> do you think -- >> my goodness. it's hardener you talk about prostitution in t
and runs his campaign, gives him all the advice in the world, don't play golf, it is a rich man's game you won't look like a working class guy, fight him,. >> rose: william jennings brian. >> right and he is so happy when taft wins, taft will carry out my legacy, i trust no one more, he calls him a beloved person in his letters, teddy then goes to africa and gives him space, comes back and his progressive friends tell him that taft hasn't been as honest to the legacy. >> rose: and is cozing up to ceos. >> and to the regulars in the congress who he needed he thought to get the tariff bill through, it was more complicated than that, he simply didn't know how to be a public leader and he screwed up the things he tried to do to fulfill teddy's legacy and then teddy comes back and he is missing being president and the progressives say we want you so he ends up, of course, running against taft. >> rose: and woodrow wilson wins. >> of course when the two split the vote, actually teddy and taft together, teddy as the third party candidate and taft as the regular republican candidate get more than
, wait a minute our president is getting attacked on his healthcare plan we don't like that so in fact support among democrats has gone up and so in the virginia race one of the things that may have happened is democrats thought, no, this is going to be a referendum on obamacare, we want to defend it so we are going to get out there and vote. >> rose: the president's very low approval ratings, dipping a little bit lower which is about where george w. bush was near the end. >> that's right. and he also -- so the gallup daily track a lot of people quibble about gallup's method but dropped to 39 which is that important, below 40 number but also in the wall street journal, latest wall street journal poll the personal approval ratings were upside down for a long time people, their feelings about his job in office have been going down, but they always thought he was a pretty good guy n is a change. when in the wall street journal poll now more people don't like him than do like him and that is a problem. because thatersonal likability had kind of been holding him up as much as he had been he
all of these technological assets and human assets, we're not there, we don't know, and i think there is a lot of room for error. >> you can see robert greenwald's film in its entirety at the website unmanned.warcosts.com. i urge you to watch it with a companion because you will want to talk about the questions it raises concerning national security, drones, and the nature of war. then i'd like to know what you think. remember that in the excerpt we showed earlier the former drone operator says, "this is what we do, we kill people and break things, this is what our job is." it's true. once we insist on war as a solution, this is always the outcome. there is no way to avoid killing the innocent when you've determined to destroy your enemy. our own government has fought our wars by dropping atomic bombs on whole cities. by firebombing. carpet-bombing. by spreading the poison of agent orange over the homes and farms of noncombatants. by splashing burning napalm on children. in this war on terror, we're told either we put boots on the ground and see our own young men and women kille
are getting message universities don't want to help you deal with t they want to cover it up because it's bad press. a c average is not acceptable >> and why not focus on men, educating men about what they need to do? men need to you had what you are looking for is not hear no. what you are looking for and is s an affirmative yes. and if you are not trying to get an affirmative yes, what you are doing may not be consensual. and when you see a buddy of yours doing what he should not be doing. we need to arm people with information. >> and i think everybody around this table would agree on that. but what is wrong with adding the part about warning college women of this statistics that show a link between drinking and sexual assault >> what i think is that you can warn both men and women about it: the statistics say 80% of men and women were involved in sexual assault had been drinking. tell both. men and women hey when ruin eastbound rated your decision processing skills are not the best and for women you become physically unable to protect yourself at a greater degree. >> welcome to the panel
they have so, don't particularly like the sound of their own voice. there are actors who won't watch themselves. that you are not one of those. how just started learning to do that, because i have to. if i'm going to be the best in what i do, i have to study what i'm doing. i have to see it and hear it. i'm just starting to appreciate myself and the way i can look at , or listen to myself as much as i do now. is starting to be like, hey, i like myself now. then i can grow that way. what i did back in the day, i don't want to see it or hear it, i cannot grow. that is why listen to myself and watch myself now. >> i'm going to put you on the spot here. i know what we think of your music, all the fans. if he asked me what do you love , what is your favorite song? about ask you a question mary. when you talk about listening to yourself now, when you hear your voice, what do you hear? are there things you think you can still work on, things you are trying to perfect, are you happy with your voice at this point? >> i love that question. i see nothing but imperfections. i am my worst critic.
in their decision making. >> washington has become a place driven by money and power. and the poor don't have money by definition, and they don't have a lot of power. the idea that if you have to cut $40 billion from the agriculture budget, you would cut all $40 billion for food stamps and nothing from affluent cotton farmers or rice farmers. cooperate they go without so mothers could feed their family? so it's not a close call. >> what is not a close call is the growing income gap separating the wealthy from the rest. >> the disparity between the wealthiest 1% and the other 99% is wider in the u.s. than any other developed country. for instance, the richest 400 individuals own more wealth than the bottom 150 million. economists say that's one reason the american dream is beyond the reach of so many americans. >> so essentially, although we've seen productivity rise dramatically over the last two decades, workers' wages have been flat. if you look at that graph about when productivity and wages separated, what else happened at that time? union membership plummeted. unions were a great equalizing in
about what you want to do and what you don't want to do at this point? >> i try to do what i said i would do, say yes to the things that make my heart beat faster. particularly if there is something scary about it. it is good for me to try to go there. thingspast year, doing like on 30 rock. it was so fun and so scary. i did not want to let anybody down. they are so fast. it is really sorting through the best of the things i offered. but the things that make it easier for me not to feel concerned if i am not working every minute is about seven years ago, i started writing music and i ended up with a publishing deal with universal music. we just got a tim mcgraw cut which is pretty exciting. tavis: pretty big, tim mcgraw. i just started writing a song with kris allen who won american idol for a small indie movie. it brings me great joy to do that. it is something i can do whenever i want to do it. i like that. tavis: seven years ago, you got this deal but you did not start writing music seven years ago -- >> i did, actually. tavis: hold up. seven years ago, you started to ?o music i
you a break? you don't have to be as good as people who have devoted their life to it? >> i think it goes both ways. i think -- and then there are some forums that are more accepted paths for an actor to taken that others so now it's generally more -- you know, people are okay with the actors becoming directors ben affleck won an oscar for best picture and eastwood and kevin costner, it's -- it's -- redford. i mean, anyone, almost anyone from the '70s that was an actor, nicholson, de niro, beatty, they've all directed and most of them directed some very good movies. when an actor writes a book-- not a memoir but a book of fiction, i would say the fives are out. before i have anyone -- before anyone has read it the guns are already out. so i wrote a book of short stories called palo alto. >> rose: about where you grew up? >> it takes place in my hometown palo alto, california, about the time i was a teenager and it's about teenagers but it's a book of fiction, again. it's not a memoir. it was fairly well accepted. i got decent reviews but there was still -- what i was doing at the
something out there. tavis: good water. great artists who perform this stuff but don't necessarily write it emma since you mention sinatra, con -- necessarily write it, since you was hisd sinatra, khon muse. he sang 87 songs from the same guy. >> one thing i can say about frank sinatra which white -- which i will say in my show is that he always acknowledged to the writers. if you ever notice in his live performances are you see -- or you hear a live album, he always gave them credit. tavis: and you do the same thing. i have seen you everywhere but the carlyle. this season, hope to get there and see you. i saw bobby short there when he was holding court for 30 some years. years and iere 36 have beenhere nine. i have been there every year since he passed away. by the time i catch him come i will be am a 60. [laughter] , i haveelieve that [indiscernible] mike is on the way over to brooklyn. tavis: you love that room. >> i was honored to be asked to do that. know, i got a call that bobby had passed away. he always did that holiday season. now i am doing what he also did. he would come
of america. you don't snitch on your friends. it is part of street life. his life would have been more difficult if he told the police who it was. been muchould have more difficult, but he stood up for what he believed in and it made me realize that justice is possibly an item that can be bought and sold. tavis: you are on to the question i want to ask now. what did you learn about the notion of justice and how malleable it might be? >> justice was a commodity and that poor people could not afford it and rich people can. it is the reason why many rich people don't go to jail for all crimes committed. lawyersan't afford good and to be able to burden the system, you are headed to jail. i always struggle to support the underdog. i have always been for the team that is two points behind. let me jump forward and i will come right back. there is so much in this book that i can't do justice to. experience inform your songwriting years down the road? you have been rich over the years speaking to humanity of all kinds of people. i am getting a sense of what that did to put you on the road years
. it is interesting. i wish that would publish the rest of it. to show us the rest of the draft text. i don't think at this point would be particularly harmful to the agreement to let us do something about the countries negotiating position. that thelly disagree tpp negotiations are especially secret. there's a lot that goes on in congress that the public doesn't know about. when congress writes a law, we don't know in advance what it is going to be before it gets proposed. they're still trying to figure out what the contents of the agreement will be. they don't know yet, but they're working on it. eventually, we will see it well in advance of when it becomes law and congress will have the chance to decide to vote yes or no on the agreement. >> lori wallach, what most surprised you about seeing the tpp agreement for the first time yesterday, the wikileaks leak? >> first of all, this is extraordinary secret. i followed these negotiations since 1990 one with nafta. during nafta, any member of congress could see any tax -- in fact, the whole agreement between the get shading rance was put -- was accep

and the candidate are so wary of it you don't have anything like the access if you are a daily reporters even the television reporter with a lot of access you don't have anything like the access people had in teddy white day. even at the beginning of my career, 1992 i would fly in a small plane with governor clinton and talk, so much access to bill clinton on that campaign there were nights on the charter where he would come back to talk to us and we would pretend to be asleep because we spent the day talking to him but now the theeld is so absolute, 500 long interviews, not short interviews and part of why we were able to get stories that don't come out during the campaign is because it takes a lot of interviews and a lot of matching up interviews and going back to people and cross-checking to get the kind of behind the scenes, so it is not cash it is not possible to, impossible to get little bits of it but if you want to tell the whole story you need time doing it and that is not possible with the demands of daily journalism. >> rose: is it easier because you have done it before and they sa
